On my quick weekend at home, we got some weather and to give mommy a break, my daughter and I watched some storms roll in.

I pray when she gets older that she loves the weather as much as me and we can do this kind of thing all the time.

Edit: Throwing this in the Odd Couple and Lyla make an interesting couple, but also Us versus Storm :)

    My daughters watch me with great curiosity when I get excited by storm clouds. My oldest, though pretty fearless doesn't much like it when the skies act threatening. We don't get it much here in California, so I think that's part reason why. I'd also really love it if my wife and daughters dug on severe weather as much as I do… I'm still proselytizing them...

    By the way… this shot is excellent. I really like that you two are in the picture… it gives some scope and human drama to the scene. Fantastic stuff man!
